Interview with Ruth

JM: How many different blocks were there?
Ruth: At EWCC there was 6 different dorms originally capacity of 65-80 now holding 120 women in each dorm. RCJ - had 2 blocks each block with 8 room double occupancy always over capacity. I even slept on the floor at one point they had 4 girls in one cell usually has 3. HCCC - 2 bldgs. each with 4 quarters ( one being previous death row in Oklahoma.) The cell I was in never had a light. I was only at this facility for 2 months but we refer to it as Hell-SIDE. THE PLACE IS LITERALLY FALLING APART. Avalon - this place had 2 wings, one wing reserved for private pay and the other for state inmates. 14 dorms 4 of which held 10 and others 16.

JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they?
Ruth: They were numbered Like at EWCC Dorm 1, etc. At Avalon same thing HCCC they were lettered and RCJ lettered as well.

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
Ruth: Being females we were mixed not separated like the men are. At EWCC the only differences were RTP (Regimented Treatment Program) and Dorm 1 which was helping women Recover ( which I was in.)

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Ruth: The recovery dorm was quieter and RTP was not allowed to associate with General Population. Avalon they tried to separate the trustees from those allowed to work off center but didn't always work out that way.
